Hokkaido is Japan’s northernmost island. It’s cool temperatures and wide open spaces have given it a reputation for great farm products, especially dairy, corn, and root crops like potatoes, onions, and carrots. It’s bountiful seafood, like salmon and crab, are also famous throughout Japan. Ishikari nabe is a tasty hotpot that combines some of these famous products in a miso broth accented with melted butter.

Units: US | Metric
- 1 lb salmon fillet
- 6 tablespoons salmon roe (ikura)
- 4 large leaves napa cabbage
- 7 ounces bok choy, root parts trimmed off
- 2 leeks, chopped (white portion only)
- 1/3 cup enoki mushrooms
- 4 shiitake mushrooms
- 1 cup frozen corn kernels, blanched
- 2 medium potatoes
- 0.667 (1 1/16 lb) package firm tofu
- 1 ounce arrowroot starch noodles (kuzukiri)
- 4 slices steamed fish cakes (kamaboko)
- butter, to taste
- 1 quart dashi stock
- 1 ounce red miso
- 3 ounces white miso
- shoyu, to taste
- sake, to taste
- mirin, to taste
- 1Scale or skin the salmon, remove the ribs and belly lining, and use hone-nuki to pull out the bones (you will find them along the center line and near the head end of the fish there are also pin bones in the thicker back side of the fillet). Cut the fillets into large bite-sized pieces.
- 2Marinate the ikura in a mix of water, shoyu, and sake (4 parts/1 part/1 part).
- 3Steam the potatoes for about 30 minutes. Cut the potatoes into 1 inch thick slices, cabbage, naga-negi, and tofu into large bite-sized pieces. Cut the bottom end from the enoki mushrooms and divide into small sections if they are stuck together.
- 4Soak the kuzukiri in hot water until softened.
- 5Arrange salmon, vegetables, tofu, kuzukiri, and kamaboko on serving plates. Put ikura and butter in separate bowls with serving spoons.
- 6Combine the dashi and miso in your nabe pot, stir well to dissolve the miso. Heat over high heat. Taste and adjust the seasoning with shoyu, sake, and mirin.
- 7If you want to serve your nabe tableside, put the nabe pot on a portable burner and arrange the remaining ingredients around the pot. Each diner can put items they like in the pot. When your food is cooked, put it in your bowl with some soup and top it with some butter and ikura.
